Back / Forward buttons neglect Quick Search

Post by Infi220 » Thu Nov 05, 2015 8:14 pm

Steps to repro:
1) Navigate to a place that contains multiple folders
2) In Quick Search field enter a string to filter the view to a few folders
3) Go into one of those folders.
4) Try clicking the "Back" button (left arrow) in the toolbar

Expected: it should take me back to the previous folder with the filtered view in the quick search. Such behavior would be consistent with Windows Explorer.
Actual: it takes me to the previous folder without the filtered view. This is inconsistent with Windows Explorer.

Suggestion how to fix: XnViewMP should remember the searched view (folder and string in Quick Search) as a step in the history of visited locations, so the "back" and "forward" buttons work properly.

Would it be possible to implement this in the next version?

Is there any way to fix it so the behavior is consistent with Windows Explorer? (i.e. quick searches are also saved in the history)

I would like to come back to this topic to see if it would be possible to add this feature. It's really important for me. As it is, I have to copy/paste the string in the Quick Search before entering any folders because after entering any folder and then going back the quick search string is gone.
